Plot Summary

  • Alex Preston is murdered and his corpse placed in the Crowcall stone circle in a field on his land. He was intending to plough the field, setting him at odds with the New Dawn druids, all of whom have alibis. His wife Eleanor was two-timing him with her fencing instructor, and local cop Trevor Gibson destroys her alibi but when Leticia Clifford, a leading druid, is killed in the same way as Alex, crimes of passion are ruled out. As Barnaby and Jones disagree over the possibility of Gibson's involvement Barnaby seeks the advice of local historian Caradoc Singer, hoping to discover if the killings were motivated by greed or bound up with popular superstitions such as the Sleeper Under the Hill.

  • DCI John Barnaby and DS Ben Jones investigate the murder of a local farmer, Alex Preston, whose body is found laid out in the middle of a stonehenge in Midsomer Mow. The new medical examiner, Dr. Kate Wilding, confirms that the victim was disemboweled but that a head injury was the likely cause of death. He was likely killed at his home and his body moved. His wife Eleanor reappears and it seems she's been having an affair with her fencing instructor. A local police sergeant suspects a group of Druids who had a spat with Preston over access to the henge. There's no direct evidence linking them to the death but then one of the Druids is stabbed to death in her house. A third death leads Barnaby to conclude that greed and a valuable treasure are at the root of it all.
